Utah Sens. Mike Lee and Orrin Hatch say they'll block President Obama's nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court. Presidential candidates make campaign stops in Utah before Tuesday's caucuses even as a highly-anticipated debate is shelved. A Utah woman sues a former prosecutor-turned-federal judge, alleging he sexually abused her. And Salt Lake City residents push for more accountability from the city's Police Civilian Review Board.


On Friday at 9 a.m., Tribune reporters Jennifer Dobner, Christopher Smart, Thomas Burr and Matt Canham as well as government and politics editor Dan Harrie join Jennifer Napier-Pearce to talk about the week’s top news stories.

Tune in to KCPW or Utah Public Radio for the broadcast.
